RFK Jr's excellent 12 minute interview on WGN radio Chicago. Damning commentary on the corruption in Atlanta.
Mar 19, 2015, WGN Radio: Robert F. Kennedy Jr. supports vaccinations . as long as they contain no harmful additives
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is in Chicago to attend the premiere of the documentary "Trace Amounts." He talks to Bob and Marianne about mercury in vaccines, the need for reform at the CDC, his family history in Chicago and more.
Audio: Kennedy called for safe vaccines and the removal of mercury and aluminum. He talked about the research on his book, Thimerosal, Let the Science Speak. With the help of 12 research scientists, "we came up with about over 500 studies and 1,400 references that connect mercury in vaccines to a grim inventory of brain injuries, ADD, ADHD, speech delay, language delay, autism, ASD. That all became epidemic in this country with the generation that became vaccinated in 1989. 1989 is the gateway year when we started seeing all of these injuries. The autism rates went from one in 10,000 to one in 65. . . . According to CDC, one out of every three American children has some kind of neurodevelopmental disorder. Of course they deny that it's coming from vaccines, but if you look at the science, it's very clear that it is. We need to get the mercury out of the vaccines. . . . The vaccine that has the biggest dose is the flu vaccine which is now being given to pregnant mothers, and it's the last thing that you'd want to put into a pregnant woman.
"The movie is really an extraordinary movie. . . . The filmmaker actually received a tetanus vaccine when he was 29 years old and got autism-like symptoms. He got it chelated out and got better, but it put him on a journey where he started looking at the corruption at CDC, how the scientists at CDC have been corrupted, and how the whole institution has been compromised through these very very profound financial conflicts of interest with the vaccine industry. The vaccine industry is a trillion dollar industry and each one of these vaccines that they add to the schedule can guarantee a company about a billion dollars. And there's no advertising cost, they can't be sued because Congress has made it illegal to sue vaccine companies for product defects. Their patents never run out so it's a real profit center for the pharmaceutical industry. It's become a money making proposition.
"Why is it that when I was a boy, I only got five vaccines, but kids today are getting 69 vaccines? And there are 271 vaccines now in development in the bureaucratic pipelines at CDC that they at some point are going to want to add to the schedule. And the question is, when is enough enough?"
Kennedy was asked about the measles outbreak linked to Disneyland by host Marianne Murciano. "The conversation has never been about the safety of the vaccine. It's either are you a pro-vax or an anti-vax. Where is the conversation about, yes, I believe in vaccination, but don't put all that stuff in my vaccine?"
Kennedy: "You are exactly right. That's the point. . . . People have done whole books saying why is it that all these studies show that it's the most educated communities that have the lowest vaccination rates. The reason for that is those are the people who are actually reading the science. They read what's happening at CDC and the corruption. The CDC is just a sock puppet to the vaccine companies. And these people are looking at that and saying, do I want to inject formaldehyde into my kid. . .? Do I want to inject aluminum and mercury? Mercury is a thousand times more neurotoxic than lead. Why would you inject that into a pregnant woman or a baby?
"The so--called 'anti-vaxxers' have been vilified, pilloried and treated as heretics. I've met now hundreds and hundreds of them and without exception, all of them that I've met are people who have brain-injured children. Whose children were injured and have an older child that was injured from the vaccines. They're not anti-vaccine, but they're cautious. They're vaccine hesitant. They' are hesitant about doing the same thing to their younger children who they think may share the same kind of genetic vulnerability. And they don't want to give more shots to their older child who's already been damaged. These are not crackpots, they're not conspiracy theorists, . . . They're people who are thoughtful people who have read the science that's out there and they no longer believe the malarkey that CDC is feeding to the press, which dutifully repeats it."
Host Bob Sirott asked Kennedy: "Do you see ["Trace Amounts"] as sort of the "Inconvenient Truth" movie about this subject, about vaccines?"
Kennedy: "In Oregon, there was a bill out there. The legislators, Republicans and Democrats, supported it, it was on the rail, and it was going to remove all the exemptions to vaccines so that you couldn't not vaccinate your kid if you had a religious exemption, or a medical exemption would be very, very difficult to come by. They would eliminate philosophical exemptions. People said there was a 100 percent chance of passing. We showed this film to legislators, and within 24 hours the bill was dead. . . . The reason people don't vaccinate is because they don't have faith in the regulatory agency. That's what all the studies say. That is the key--make sure people have faith in the regulatory agency. And here they don't have that. The answer is to get rid of the conflicts and the corruption at CDC, restore public faith in the agency, do really good science--transparent science--and people will stop exempting because they'll trust the vaccine program. But right now they don't, and it's with good reason. And if you go to this film tonight, I will be there at 7:30. . . .It really, I think, will change the way you think about vaccines. It's the truth that you don't hear on the media."
